Some of the types of cases that we regularly include the following:
Car & Motorcycle Accidents
If you are injured in a car or motorcycle accident, the damages you can recover include: medical expenses, pain and suffering, physical impairment, lost wages because of the injury and property damage. Timely action is needed in these cases to ensure the preservation of evidence and prompt investigation. Our skilled personal injury attorneys will clearly explain all the legal aspects that apply to your case in clear, concise terms, and ensure that your case is properly investigated. We will help process out no-fault insurance claim and then follow up regularly throughout the claim process to make sure your medical bills are getting paid, reducing worry and simplifying the always-challenging insurance claim process for you.
Truck accidents can be caused by negligence by the truck driver or another party. To show negligence, the injured person must show that the defendant breached a duty of due care to the victim, and that the breach was the foreseeable cause of the injury. If the truck driver (or trucking company) is found to be negligent, then the injured person may seek compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, physical impairment, property damages and more. Where there is evidence of defendant’s outrageous conduct (such as alcohol or drug use), the injured person may also be entitled to punitive damages.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall injuries often result from slippery conditions caused by water, paint, oil or other lubricants, food and drink, or other slick substances on a walking surface. Trip and fall injuries may be caused by hidden hazards, poor lighting, uneven walkways or missing handrails. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident on someone else’s property, on a sidewalk or other public property, or at a retail store or other business, you may have a claim to recover for your injuries.

The Sekas Law Group’s Workers’ Compensation team concentrates on representing injured workers who have suffered a work-related injury or disease. These injuries include traumatic accidents, occupational diseases, and injuries caused by toxic substances or repetitive motions.
When a family member’s death is caused by negligence, the surviving family members can bring a wrongful death lawsuit to recover damages (money). Often, the death leaves family members with emotional losses as well as financial losses. These losses include medical bills, funeral bills, and lost support (lost pension, salary, health insurance benefits and other benefits.) Wrongful deaths can occur as the result of work related injuries, car wrecks, medical malpractice, pharmacy prescription error or by the use of defective products or drugs.
